fedora-devel-announce again (was: Re: 2009-03-26 - Fedora Test Day - Nouveau graphics driver)



Hi!

Greetings testers,

Adam Williamson and Ben Skeggs have lined up an exciting Fedora Test Day
topic.  This Thursday, March 26 will focus on testing the new nouveau
graphics driver.  If the Intel graphics test day [1] was any indication,
this will be a busy event.

Why are these "Fedora Test Day" announcements being send to fedora-devel-announce? I can't see how they fit into the rule set that
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-devel-announce
lists. Quoting it here again:

"""
This list is intended to be a LOW TRAFFIC announce-only list for Fedora development.

Acceptable Types of Announcements
- Policy or process changes that affect developers.
- Infrastructure changes that affect developers.
- Tools changes that affect developers.
- Schedule changes

Unacceptable Types of Announcements
- Periodic automated reports (violates the INFREQUENT rule)
- Discussion
- Anything else not mentioned above

They IMHO violate the hinted "INFREQUENT rule", as they come weekly right now.

CU
knurd (who is getting more and more worried that packagers with only one or two packages start to ignore fedora-devel-announce because it gets more and more mails that are not of interest for them)

P.S.: While at it: The mail "Fedora 11 Beta slip" definitely was okay for fedora-devel-announce, but I wonder if it should have gone to fedora-announce-list as well, as such slips in the past normally have been announced there; take the F11 Alpha slip for example:
